MedEdits helps each student find his or her distinctive qualities, strengths and story to stand out in the college admissions process. Starting with an initial one hour session via Skype or phone, we assess the student’s academic performance, test scores, activities (scholarly and extracurricular) as well as life experiences. We also talk about letters of reference and essay topics. Following this initial session, we work with the applicant on school selection, essay and application development, writing and editing and, ultimately, school selection choice. Meant to be combined with our BS/MD packages or as a stand-alone service, our college admissions services allow the student to put forth an application that showcases the individuality of each applicant and what he or she has achieved in a way that appeals to admissions officers.
